Why need this technology?

Technology such as interactive blackboards used to be teaching aids in the classroom, but in recent years it has become the primary mean of connecting students with their teachers for lessons during social distancing, providing self-learning materials to students, and encouraging involvement by enhancing interaction.   According to Global Market Insights, as of 2020, the e-learning market was at US$250 billion with an anticipated growth of over 21% from 2021 to 2027.   Schools and businesses alike are adopting online learning tools for improving engagement and learning experience.  The good news is that there are numerous options of online platforms and tools for creating interactive distance learning and online lesson plans for nearly any subject.

Interactivity, whether it be between peers or between the teacher and students, is crucial to make the learning process more engaging.  However, crafting a lesson plan for online lessons and taking full advantage of interactive tools such as games and videos can be daunting.  This course can bridge the gap between educators’ comfort zone and the current e-learning trend by providing guidance and hands-on experience on the use of interactive platforms, planning lessons, filming and broadcasting videos and live streaming.

Pain Points We Solved

Educators have been required to make this change from traditional classrooms to online classrooms in a whirlwind in the past years and it had been, for some, a hit-or-miss situation in implementation.  Given the technology advancement and the vast application and popularity of e-learning, t is definite that online teaching and learning is going to stay and be further developed in the future. 

In this light, it is essential for current and future educators to equip themselves with the skills to conduct effective and interactive lessons online.  Through this program, education institutions and their personnel can learn to use and develop interactive learning platforms targeted at their specific preferences and needs.  While it may be great to have a standardized platform for all to use, it may not be able to cater for differences amongst subjects, teaching style, student preferences or difficulty levels.  Acquiring the skills to design your own online teaching content, filming videos for education purpose, live streaming lessons and establishing online teaching platforms with interactive elements could cater for all your specific needs.

Programme Highlights

This program is designed for traditional education centers, tutorial schools and tutors. It teaches learners how to design and produce interactive online courses, establish an online teaching platform, and conduct lives streaming.  After taking this course, learners will be able to conduct online teaching with no geographical or time constraints, allowing their students to learn according to their own progress.

“I am the owner of a tutorial centre. In the past, we only offered face-to-face lessons and the number of students we can have during peak after-school hours was limited by the size of our centre. We realized this limited our clientele and was not the best use of our resources. After taking the course and learning to set up our own online teaching platform, students can flexibly opt to participate in our tutorials at home and more students can use our service. We are happy to say that business has gone up by 30%!”

Case Study
Using online platforms for teaching: motivates students, generates income

How does the use of interactive learning platform benefit all parties?


Before taking this course, a private instructor who taught Putonghua to children conducted lessons in-person only. The cost and time for commuting to and fro students’ home was significant. Being aware that students are now accustomed to e-learning via online platforms, the instructor decided to develop her own online interactive learning platform, filmed and shared videos to her students, conducted classes by live streaming and provided timely feedback to students’ enquiries online. The instructor has time to teach more students and generate more income without leaving the comfort of her home. Meanwhile, her students were willing to try out different interactive games to learn Putonghua and could go through recordings of the lesson at their own pace. A win-win situation beneficial to both the instructor and students was achieved!
